The vote to demote Pluto occurred in the most Plutonian time in recorded history and was underhanded and highly contentious.
[A]stronomers are already circulating a petition that would try to overturn the IAU decision."
"[O]nly 424 astronomers were allowed to vote, out of some 10,000 professional astronomers around the globe."
"Pluto vote 'hijacked' in revolt... A fierce backlash has begun against the decision by astronomers to strip Pluto of its status as a planet."
"Pluto is the second-most complex, interesting planet in our solar system behind Earth"
"NASA Administrator Says Pluto Is Still a Planet, And Things Are Getting Heated" 
"NASA missions may re-elevate Pluto and Ceres from dwarf planets to full-on planet status." [still waiting]
Years after demoting Pluto, NASA announced a new constellation, Ophiuchus. Both throw a monkey wrench into astrology - is that the intention? NASA scientists say astrology is beneath their consideration, so I guess that settles it...
"No, we did not change the zodiac. When the Babylonians invented the constellations 3,000 years ago, they chose to leave out a 13th sign. So, we did the math." - NASA
So they think the ancients 'chose to leave out the 13th sign'? They also thought the ancients were primitive, until this happened...
On a related note, why are the photos of all the planets in our solar system, except Earth, so distant or so close that we can't see their full terrain? And why the same photos of Uranus & Neptune for decades? Hubble can photograph other galaxies, but not the outer planets of our solar system?
With all the focus on Moon & Mars [that both happen to resemble the Arizona desert], what about Earth's twin, Venus? This image of Venus was created from NASA's Mariner 10 spacecraft in 1974 - 47 years ago...
Now NASA claims Venus is just too hot for the cameras. mmm-hmmm And why would anyone question NASA [and expect a straight answer]? But a sensible old theory is new again, that the Sun is not hot and the The Universe is a Vast Electric Organism. What might that say about Venus?
We do see some beautiful shots of Jupiter, but all things considered you have to wonder what we're not seeing. Endless efforts are made to cloak our ancient past, so why not our cosmos? In the age of Darwin the serfs just foot the bill, but that's getting really old.
I've been an astrologer in my home state of Massachusetts for over forty years. My journey started at 13 with Linda Goodman's Sun Signs; a fantastic book that re-ignited the New Age in 1968.
The '70s were a heady time, with great astrologers just bus stops away, so my sister Anne and I headed to lectures with the likes of Isabel Hickey, Francis Sakoian and Oscar Weber. Then in '74 acclaimed astrologer Paul Guercio moved to our town and held small, intimate classes within walking distance and off we went to expand our minds on floor pillows.
In the early 80s Anne went off to make babies and I began a five year apprenticeship with Paul that became a lifelong frenemyship. Paul did his thing in Boston & NY radio throughout the 80s and sometimes I tagged along, pretty cool for a city bumpkin.
In the late 80s I went off to make babies and Paul collaborated with government physicist Dr. George Hart on a forecasting tool they called TimeTraks, made possible by Dr. Hart's stable of programmers. As The Merlin Project Paul & George made political forecasts on tv and radio for over two decades. Paul suddenly passed in 2019 and he is sorely missed. And TimeTraks is no more, not publicly anyway.
Paul taught me to keep it simple and in 1994 I followed his lead. Pregnant with my third baby and feeling procreatively creative, I designed the FutureGraph™ & BirthPrint™, to make astrology accessible to all, as it's meant to be. Other stuff followed over the years.
And as luck would have it, I married a Goodman. And no I didn't marry him for his name, but it did turn out to be the best thing about him.
Thank you for visiting. I hope you find what you're looking for.
